    Love this. So many people say "well I know God above all else wants me to be happy... Do what makes you happy" but the truth of the matter is LIFE IS TOO SHORT to do all the things that make you in the moment feel good. God is about holiness. Bringing things together for our good. Never says just so that we can feel good. Joy is a choice happiness... An emotion!

    The Holy Spirit

    "THE ONLY SAFE EVIDENCE THAT WE ARE IN CHRIST IS A HOLY LIFE. If we know nothing of holiness, we may flatter ourselves that we are Christians but we do not have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us." ~ Jerry Bridges

    So true.

    AMEN!

    I hesitate to call it "the kind of happiness", because I think joy and happiness are two separate things, but yes, joy doesn't depend one what happens. Joy is something nothing and no one can steal from you.

    Very true

    Even in uncertain times, it’s always important to keep things in perspective.

    God

    WARNING ... God IS NOT an option!

    Waiting on God isn’t about doing nothing — it is about allowing God to do His thing.

    This is hard to remember as an entrepreneur, but so true. "Comparison is the Thief of Joy" -- Theodore Roosevelt. How do you maintain a competitive edge without comparing? You can be aware of what others are doing, but focusing on your own efforts, rather than constantly comparing yourself to others, is where the joy will be found.

    ''All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my mother.''

    AMEN.
